WIP Wednesday.....

I love joining up with the WIP Wednesday. It makes me try and get stuff done so I can post about it. Being winter here, it's had to get into a (warm)groove. Since the boys have gone back to school after the holidays I have not felt like sewing. I have to quilt because I have customers, but I wouldn't if I didn't have to. 
So today I made an effort. I had some swap blocks that are due now so I got stuck into it. I think it's because the sun is finally out. I threw the house open, hung the sofa quilts on the line in the sun and got some sewing done.

One swap block done

Another cut ready to go

Last week I found the Farmers Wife Sampler book at a gorgeous store,Calico & Ivy, in Balmain. I couldn't just leave it there. I have this beautiful fat pack of Oasis. Perfect combo. Can't wait to start it.

Sorry for the Absence.....

Sorry I haven't been posting. We have just got back from a holiday to Melbourne and we were straight back into school and work.

A little of what I have been doing.

I picked up my crochet hook again and with some really nice yarn I am having fun with granny squares with a twist.

I will post about our holiday soon.

Happy Quilting

WIP Wednesday...

It's been a strange couple of days. My boys have gone to stay with Ma & Pa for a couple of days and I've been bangin' around here all by myself. As I am on "holidays" I thought I would put one of my quilts on the frame and do some whimsical custom quilting. I would have done a customer one but I'm waiting on a thread delivery.

This quilt is made from Heather Bailey fabrics. It is so fresh.

I left the whirlygigs with no quilting. I only quilted the background......

The other project I have done a bit on this week is my dresden plate. There are 500+ wedges that were sewn and turned through. Next up is the pressing. I'm putting that off. I should just do 20 at a time and it won't hurt my back so much... 

I'm linking up with WIP Wednesday over at Freshly Pieced. Go on over and see what everyone else is up to...
